Simply put, data theft. The unauthorised copying, transfer or retrieval of data from a computer. It can be achieved manually, but is more often performed by cybercriminals operating over a network or the internet, via malicious programmes. Data exfiltration usually occurs as a deliberate and targeted attack when a hacker targets a specific piece or set of data.
